Every day thousands of balloons of all imaginable shapes and sizes are released into the atmosphere from different corners of the planet. For that reason alone, it should be no surprise that balloons constitute a major cause of UFO/UAP reports...
... A new type of balloon, one that is bound to cause additional UFO/UAP reports in the following years, is the light balloon, a helium-filled balloon illuminated from the inside by tungsten halogen lamps or by powerful High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps.
I receive telepathic messages and dreams and visions from these space beings. And they tell me that they are preparing to intervene into the affairs of the world, and let themselves be seen. They've explained to me how they are going to do it. They are going to do fly byes in major cities. And let ufo tv news film them.Also after they get started with appearing like that they are going to start landing on American soil!
Pretty soon there will be a massive ufo fly over event over major cities various parts of the world for everyone on the planet to see. This will be the event that will force us, the people to take charge and make our government tell us the truth, there will be no denying it.

Man we need to team up.
You tell me the next time you all are going to be doing a test, I’ll get the press to show up a few miles away, give them some pseudo-religious babble with a hocus-pocus, and we’ll make a mint.
While he may be a hoax, the balloon theory is a bit weak. Think about it, any object that is a few miles up would need to be moving very fast to see any motion. When you see a 747 in the sky it looks like it's barely creeping across the sky yet it's really going around 580mph.
For a balloon that high to be seen moving across the clouds it would need to be moving 300mph+. If it were the jet stream then the clouds would be moving as well.
Also the balloon would need to be huge, (and) that's taking a risk having someone let go a balloon that large and having nobody see it go up.

So much bunk around lately... A solid sign of an economic crisis. LOL!

You don't consider the lack of a single good photo or video a bit suspicious? Remember, according to him, he can call UFOs at will and has been doing it for years.

But I'm still perplexed why he was so concerned about the wind conditions in that other vid.. lol, so aliens don't like flying on windy days?

What I saw didn't look like a balloon. I could be wrong, he could be a fraud, but I have yet to see this proven.
Just show me where this is proven to be a balloon.

Debunker: Prove you can call down UFOs.

SOMETHING appears, which fits general discriptions of UFOs.
Debunker: Oh, it's just a (ballon/cloud/swamp gas reflecting the light of venus).
Nice straw man you've got there! That's absolutely not the position we "debunkers" (skeptics) take when it comes to UFO videos of any kind. It shouldn't even be up to people to come in and prove something is fake to begin with. The burden of proof doesn't rest on our shoulders.
My position is as follows:
The video shows a man chanting for UFO's and an object appears. The man claims it's a vehicle driven by aliens. Religious mumbo jumbo aside, prove to us that it truly is what you claim it to be. Prove to us that it can't be an airplane (real or RC), balloon, or kite. Once you've proven to us that it can't be replicated by man? Prove to us that it can't be replicated in nature (this should be seemingly easier because of this specific cases context). Once you've done that allow for third parties to review your case. If you've done all of that and there's no other logical (and simpler) explanation for this phenomena then you can start to blame it on the extraordinary.
